I was pleased with my recent case results in Northampton, Virginia. One case involved a reckless driving by speed case at 90 mph in a 55 mph zone, in Northampton County, which was reduced to a speeding infraction. The other case involved an accident case where the other driver passed away as a result of the accident. In that case, my client got minimal jail time, even though there was a fatality.
